Excellent reddit client with a focus on conversation and great material design


Reddit News is one of the best reddit clients out there. It preserves the community feel of the web version, making it easy to get lost for countless hours within your preferred weirdo subreddits (r/youtubehaiku is my own personal kryptonite).


It's super simple to flip between content and comments in Reddit News, highlighting the hivemind of the community. The parent comment stays visible, meaning you have more of a context for the conversation. Plus, the material design UI is top-notch; it's comfortable and fast to navigate.


The sharing link and options for replying with your own comments are buried a bit within the UI. It also hasn't been updated in well over six months.

    I love the look and feel of this app, but on my Nexus 6 it randomly, and quite often, closes. It is very frustrating. Get this fixed and you have yourself 5 stars.

    I just updated and now its crashing every time I open the app. Please fix! Relay is the best reddit app I've found! I'm using an HTC one m8 on lollipop 5.0.1.

    Just as the title says, great app until now; I can't even open the app after the last update.
